Thanks for your visit! If you come back ask for your wings “naked” or without flour. We make them both ways! Pura pollo! Danny Blanco Head Pirate and Wing Cheg

Excellent wings with plenty of freshly made sauces to choose from. Service was great. Our waiter, Francisco, was very personable and did a great job of helping me pick out the perfect sauce. We'll be back.

There are many varieties of wings and all are delicious. Beer is very cold and service is great. Bar is located very near to he beach and has a great surf view.

There is not much live music around this place so when I heard a singer coming from the Jolly Roger Bar we went in. It's a typical tourist bar but it had live music. The staff was super friendly and inviting. They really cared about...More

We specialize in 24 different wing flavors. The portion size is 1 1/4 pound or about 10-12 wings. Check out our 3/4 pound hand pattied burgers with hand cut fries, or the individual tortilla pizzas. Vegetarians we think you'll love the black bean burger and the cauliflower wings! And don't miss the Storm Fries. A big 'ol plate of our hand cut fries tossed with a little butter, garlic and parmesan!
